  1. This was surprisingly wonderful. I add fresh chopped cilantro to the lettuce mix and deffinitely will do so again. I also let the “fajita” mixture cool off slightly before adding it to the greens. Next time I might even add some raw pumpkin seens for crunch. Super yummy. Even for non-paleo eaters, this is a keeper!

  2. So I can’t see the nutritional content of a single meal unless I’m a member? Then I have no way of knowing if you’re one of those sites who provide Paleo recipes that have more fat than a Big Mac. Moving to the next site… =(

    1. Jason – That’s correct. It’s a perk we give to our members. And on this site, we don’t have a problem with high fat meals – we just don’t like the bun, the cheese, the vegetable oil, the soy, the preservatives, and the ammonia in that Big Mac.

  3. Thanks for making SO much available for non-members!!!! Let’s me know you are in it for the people and not for the dollar signs :-)

  4. For the people complaining about not listing nutrition facts, there are apps such as My Fitness Pal that allow you to type in any type of food and it will give you the complete nutrition profile. You can even create recipes on there and it will add up all of the macronutrients of the recipe for you. Just FYI.
